Hi,

Can anyone suggest me How to create Connector between Exhange server and sendmail Server.

My  office is located is at two location one location is using Exchange Server and we are using Sendmail Server. we have setup site to site VPN through Fortigate Firewall at both location.

Now we want to send/receive internal mails between these two mail Server (Exchange and Sendmail)
Is this possible to make a SMTP connector, If possible what method is to create connector in sendmail server?
Example:-

Site A - Using Exchange server and DNS name is abc.com
Site B -  Using sendmail Server and DNS name is xyz.com
Site to Site VPN is implemented at both location.
If any one wants to send mail from abc.com to xyz.com that should reach us locally.

For the exchange part you would create another connector in Organisation Configuration > Hub Transport and give it an address space of xyz.com and set it to forward to the sendmail servers IP address as a smarthost.

Not sure about the sendmail side but you may want to have a look at: http://www.sendmail.org/tips/relaying

Also if the sendmail server is using an internal DNS server you could add an MX record for the abc.com address and give itvte internal address of the exchange server.

Thanks for your reply. i do no have domain setup so i have no DNS Server. My MX Record is created at hosted side as follows:

i have booked my domain at Rackspace and created an MX Record and pointed to My Public IP.

Why i am asking this question becuase my company merged with another company and they have all setup on Exchange but i have a setup on Sendmail.

In this situation what is the option?

Please suggest.
